Westin and Omni are both full!

We have reached the maximum available capacity at both the Westin and the Omni. That does not mean that there is no hope! Remember, the Westin is maintaining a waiting list and will be contacting people on that list as rooms come available. Also, there are bound to be cancellations at both the Westin and the Omni, particularly toward the end of April when the deposits are due, so check back from time to time to see what might have freed up. In the meantime, there are other hotels nearby that you can investigate.

Dealer's Room Update!

Hey kids! (Hey Dr. Foxish!)

It's the end of the first month of 2008, and with it comes some news from your loyal staffers in the Dealer's Room! Now we've seen from a lot of dealers so far--over one hundred and thirty dealers and assistants have already applied for our space, and we've processed the whole lot in-hand, covering applications with postmarks up to about January 17th. Notifications for about a dozen more dealerships should go out this weekend.

With that influx of applicants comes the spectre of the sell-out. Now we're nowhere near completely flooding the room, so don't those of you out there who sent your apps after January 17 or who haven't sent them yet think you're up the creek just yet. However...

Wall Space is completely sold out.
Powered Tables are virtually sold out.

Important notice for dealers: tax license application has changed

As of January 1, 2008, the PA Department of Revenue is no longer accepting the short REV-518 FO form that we had on this site. It was apparently too great a chore for them to inform us of this in advance, and we apologize for any inconvenience. If you applied for your sales tax license since January 1 using the short form, you will likely get the application returned. There is information on how to use the updated application system in our newly-revised Dealer Packet.

Very important notice for all hotel guests. Please read!

One of the primary complaints we hear every year is, "I requested XXXX from the hotel and did not get it."

This is extremely important:

Your room is guaranteed, but the TYPE OF ROOM (double or king) is not guaranteed until you actually show up at the check-in desk. DO NOT count on having a double room just because you have four people on the reservation!

If you request a cot or a mini-fridge or an extra pillow, it MAY NOT be available.

If you request a room on a low floor or a high floor or a fursuit floor or the mysterious floor between 6 and 7, you MAY NOT be able to be located there.
